Psalm 111

We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.

Here is today’s prayer, preceded by the text from the Contemporary English Version, copyright 1995, by the America Bible Society:

_____

Shout praises to the Lord! With all my heart I will thank the Lord when his people meet. The Lord has done
many wonderful things! Everyone who is pleased with God’s marvelous deeds will keep them in mind. Everything the Lord does is glorious and majestic, and his power to bring justice will never end.

The Lord God is famous for his wonderful deeds, and he is kind and merciful. He gives food to his worshipers
and always keeps his agreement with them. He has shown his mighty power to his people and has given them the lands of other nations.

God is always honest and fair, and his laws can be trusted. They are true and right and will stand forever. God rescued his people, and he will never break his agreement with them. He is fearsome and holy.

Respect and obey the Lord! This is the first step to wisdom and good sense. God will always be respected.

Everything the Lord does is glorious and majestic!

psalm 111:3

Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 111:

God. Abba. Father.

Hallelujah! We praise you today and sing with all our hearts. Anytime we meet with other believers we will be quick to give you thanks!

Your works, Lord, are stunning and beautiful. When we see the bubbling smile of a child, we are filled with joy. When we see stunning sunrises, or the elegance in the fine details of a flower, we are in awe. You are our God. You are our creator. Everything you do is glorious and majestic!

You are compassionate, kind, loving and the author of grace. You give us everything we have and everything we need. You give us more than enough! Thank you.

You keep your promises to us and to the nations around the globe. You are faithful to us. We can trust you every day. You are the one constant in our fractured lives. Your ways are just and true. You lead us to take the right path.

You have provided a way to eternal life. Your Son, our savior, Jesus has paid the ransom for us. You have redeemed us from the pit of guilt and shame. You have lifted our heads so that we may smile with joy again. Thank you.

We are in awe of everything about you God. We respect you. We honor you. We thank you for the wisdom and understanding that we receive as we follow you.

You have blessed us with life! Again, we sing Hallelujah!

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
